The Pohara Boat Club is hosting its 1st Annual Fishing Competition & Market Day on the weekend of 27th & 28th January 2018.

Fishing Competition Entry Forms can be found on our website.

The Market Day will be on Sunday 28th January from 10am until 4pm, with the Fishing Competition weigh in at 5pm followed by an evening meal at the Club rooms.

For many years the Pohara Boat Club has offered Learn to Sail courses for the junior sailors of Golden Bay in our fleet of Optimist sailing dinghies. While the Optimist remains a sturdy and safe yacht for introducing kids to the fundamentals of sailing, we are keen to provide an intermediate level boat that junior sailors may graduate to, for more technical and competitive sailing.

An exciting opportunity to upgrade our sail training fleet has arrived with the introduction of the O’pen Bic class yacht to NZ (

The NZ class association says this about the O’pen Bic:
The O’pen BIC, with its modern and powerful rig, is a fast boat, quick to respond, self-bailing, and is fitted by the best marine hardware manufacturers (North, Ronstan, Robline). The O’pen BIC is the link between the Optimist generation and the new generation of sailing dinghies.

Launched in 2006, the O’pen BIC has already convinced more than 7000 young sailors around the world. They love the fun they can get out of it, its capacity to react fast and its prowess. An ISAF international class is also very active for those who enjoy competitive racing.

We are hoping to raise sufficient funds to purchase 6 of these yachts, and to help our fundraising effort, the Pohara Boat Club is hosting a fishing competition over the weekend of 27th/28th January 2018, from its base at Port Tarakohe. We are seeking sponsorship by way of prizes from local businesses, who are interested in supporting the development of junior sailors in Golden Bay.

If you are willing to support us in our efforts to provide greater opportunities for the junior sailors of Golden Bay, please contact the fishing competition organiser, Amy Ashford on 027 874 1525 or email:
